Transport & Logistics in Australia snapshot

As digitisation increases and customer expectations transform, Australia’s logistics industry is due for a shake-up, particularly with the fast-paced adaptation style that was necessary to navigate the events of 2020.

The Transport and Logistics sector in Australia had an estimated operating profit of $10.14 billion in 2018. 1

The Integrated Logistics sector (door-to-door transport through supply chains, distribution and storage) will most likely be affected by global shifts in oil and fuel prices despite Australia’s projected positive recovery from the pandemic. 2

Integrated Logistics Statistics

  • Market Size = $90 billion
  • Number of businesses = 84,000

17% of Chief Supply Chain Officers (CSCO’s) are now women, a worthy comparison to the 6% recorded in 2019.3 This is also the highest rate recorded in the last four years. As of 2017, 20% of people working in the wider transport industry are women.3
